between paris and san francisco. i have -- charlotte was a sweet person, she reminded me i was old and i was in paris now for 11 years, i had the opportunity to work with my great friend, thanks to tom horn, that's in the [inaudible] that this working relationship and eternal relationship with tom, so with the team amongst mr. lee, i could understand that the relationship between san francisco and paris is not just a friendship, it could be a very efficient relationship and i will have the pleasure tomorrow to visit various places where there's a common dynamic between paris and san francisco have made innovations, technology and the spirit of enterprise and all those elements together enable a concrete relationship between paris and san francisco and even remember it last time, with had a virtual highway between san francisco and paris, we started this virtual highway, it had a lot of babies and a lot of [inaudible] in paris and in san francisco was created, were developed from this common belief that we had in innovation, in research and with the need of building economic develop
. >>> it's been a great pleasure to live in san francisco. >> your name, sorry. >>> my name is david snyder and it's been a great pleasure to live in this city for over 30 or 40 years. and i have particular respect for julia morgan [speaker not understood]. but one time i wrote a piece that i guess through the force of karma appeared in the chronicle, i forget which, from the hurst papers. i've got a number of pieces. it was called between the bridges of the sun and of the moon. and it was inspired by ching yee who wrote a book called the silent traveler in san francisco. i wonder if ching yee could come back and see now a building that as the prior speaker said, quote, will dominate the skyline. it will be the height of twin peaks. i verified that with joshua right before i spoke to you. and that's without the funicular. with it it's even taller. * than twin peaks. is that the right size and scale for san francisco? or would that building be more appropriate in manhattan? i would like to request that this project be killed and not seen the light of day on behalf of the citizens of san fra
where local artists come together and different san francisco communities form and strengthen our common bond. i grew up in plaza east public housing. it was a tough place back then, as a number of places in the district still are. the economic and family circumstances for everyone were pretty dire. i saw family and friends lost to the streets, to prison and death including two of my siblings, i saw terrible poverty, crime, drugs, hopelessness and violence and joblessness but that was not all that we had. those people that i grew up have something else, a fighting experience resilience, those people found it in themselves to help their neighbors family and friends however they could. we relied upon each other and out of the crisis we created a great community. this is the spirit of san francisco. and that is why i am so thrilled to be able to speak to you today and now, because so many of you watching are my family, my friends, people who form the same communities that raised me up from difficult beginnings into the woman i am today. i can think of no more important calling than to use t
and as it is exercised here in the beautiful city of san francisco and the state of california where i chose to live, but many california voters are voting with their feet and they are voting with their feet to leave the state of california. they are moving to nevada, texas and other parts of the country where they are less taxed and regulated and less burdened by rules such as calorie count on the menus such as the regulations regarding home care workers, it does not make sense to start a new business here in california. and frankly that is where the taxes come from in most states they come from businesses. as the businesses flee you are going to see the tax base flee and as legislatures such as senator leno continue to pass more legislation that impedes the freedom of business and citizens to exercise their rights you are going to see them vote with their feet and leave california. >> that attorneys me as someone who wants to retire and die in california i don't want to leave the state as a economic matter i don't consider myself to be fairly taxed. i do pay a higher tax rate and i think that is f
of shuttle buses both within san francisco and those that commute to outside of san francisco. the shuttle buses clearly provide a real benefit around decreasing the amount of trips that are taken by automobiles. often people who choose to go on shuttles, if they didn't have a shuttle as an option would be in a car driving by themselves. so we know there is really great benefits to the shuttle system. we know we're seeing a proliferation of them and we don't quite have a handle in the city how to manage our shuttle -- the private shuttle fleets in the city, especially as they relate to public space that we have around muni stops. so rather than not look at how we can prevent the wild west of the shuttles to become what is happening in san francisco, it's best that we look at how we can manage that. today i am requesting the city attorney to help us draft a permit process to regulate shuttles in san francisco and colleagues, i would be very interested in having input from your offices to help manage that legislation. and that is something that we'll probably look at the in next couple o
of the san francisco fleet week association and what a great fleet week we're going to have for 2012. thank you. this is the second time we've had the uss macon islands and i want to thank captain pringle and his entire crew. what a great ship and what a great crew. they turned this swear hanger deck around all right night and turned it into a conference room and it looks absolutely beautiful. thank you, captain, and your entire crew. i'm going to make this short because we're already running a little bit behind schedule, but san francisco fleet week for the third year is organized with i object credible participation from city, civilian agencies from all around the region and all of us our fabulous united states military, the coast guard has been fabulous in providing assets to protect everybody out on the bay. it is one heck of a logistics program to get this whole program started and here we are the culmination of nearly a year of planning. we've had exercises, we've had lots of meetings down in san francisco up at the marines memorial, this is a fabulous program, we had a great medi
on november 6th. city college of san francisco has 9 campuses in the city and serves approximately 100,000 students each year. the state has reduced funding to ccsf by core academic courses, provide work force training, provide an education that prepares students for 4 year universities, keep city college libraries and student support services open, keep technology and instructional support up to date, and offset state budget cuts. i'm here with alyssa messer, an english teacher at city college of san francisco. she's the ppt of aft2121, the faculty union, and a proponent of proposition a. also joining us is starchild, a local activist with the libertarian party of san francisco and a former candidate for the san francisco school board. he's an opponent of the measure. thank you both for taking the time to be with us today. >> thank you. >> alyssa, i'd like to give you the opportunity it share the thoughts of your position. >> so proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san fran
tour company in san francisco located in hayes valley. i've led tourists every day on fell street on bikes. when they introduced that planned route to tourists they get excited about the possibility of seeing golden gate park, but they're not excited to climb hills. in fact, many of my older or out of shape tourists, they can't climb hayes. i'd love to lead tourists to san francisco all over our city without having to warn them about the dangers of cars, but i kind of saw the legal obligation to let them know about the dangers they might encounter. i give tourists a special warning about how biking along fell street will feel. i tell them cars go fast. i tell them to just breathe and keep their eyes sharp and we'll be in golden gate park soon. but tourists, after one block on fell street say to me every day, things like wow, everything felt so easy until now. or wow, those cars are really close. or the cars are kind of speedy here, huh. i'd love to improve tourist experience on fell. i'd love for their entire tour to fell safe and relaxed. i'd love for them to leave san francisco
going to go primarily for low and very low householders in san francisco. that has always been the programmatic focus because you can leverage funding. we live in a high income market and that is exactly why we have an affordable sector in this city. when it comes it recreating redevelopment, that's a fallacy. it's about recognizing that redevelopment allowed a certain portion of money to be used for redevelopment. it's not about recreating redevelopment, in fact that's a closed chapter in history. lastly the idea we are reducing the mixed income housing is also a sort of fallacy. there is a purpose to providing an incentive for developers to do what's called mixed income housing, providing some of their units are affordable to mixed income households. most developers do not do that and this is an incentive for them to do it. this is providing a set of programs that are funded providing all the way for folks who were formerly homeless to folks who are middle income to be and stay in san francisco. >> any final comments, starchild. >> it sounds like peter is saying on one h
selby. commissioners who voted against the plan, said that it gave san francisco a benefit that other regions in the south bay and east bay would not share. would you support san francisco using city taxpayer dollars to pay mtc for the cost of providing free muni service to young people in san francisco? in other words, if mtc isn't willing to do it on its own, should the city be paying more money into mtc to get the service out of mtc? >> as a last resort. that would be certainly the last way of funding it that i would look at. there is a continuity problem between the different transportation agencies that make it a little bit unworkable. at this present time i think one of the ways to deal with the issue is to see if the nuts and bolts of it can be tweaked a little bit to make it into a workable solution. maybe that may take a little bit more time, but i don't think as a sort of knee-jerk reaction we need to put the burden on taxpayers. with that being said it's vitally important for people to get around and especially those who can't afford and if you are a young person, i think
've been serving san francisco for the last more than 10 years. i've been taking people to hospitals, i've been taking people to, you know, your family, your family members, to whatever they want to go. proudly serving the san francisco for more than 10 years. but in return, what i've been waiting -- the waiting list more than eight years. in return what i got is nothing. we offer mta more than the company -- what the company offered. i don't know why -- why mta doesn't want to take the offer. i mean why is mta really against cab drivers who is always serving every day the san franciscans. i mean the voters have to finally decide this. >> chairman nolan: thank you. >> david pilpel. >> david pilpel. regarding the 37 line, there is a complicated history on that. i would encourage you to ask the director ris kin to put that in a memo to the board explaining what's happened and what is proposed to change there. i've commented before on the new transit shelters. and i've asked to no success but will try again for the status of the transition from the old shelters to the new shelters and in p
there was a research study called the san francisco clinic city cohort study or the hepatitis b cohort study, that specimens from is that study were used to develop the very first hiv antibody test to where a link to the past and the future. so, we're a link to the past and the future, and more than anything we're a link to the community. and our motto is where science meets community. our team does really cutting edge research on different kinds of prevention strategies, pre-exposure prophylaxis. and if you go to our website, join prep hiv, you'll see all of the many exciting studies that we have as well as our partnership with san francisco city clinic in launching the first demonstration project of pre-exposure prophylaxis, taking antihiv medicines to prevent new infections. we're studying topical gels, retro microbicide. the way we're going to end this epidemic is through a vaccine, we've controlled other infectious diseases through a cure. we're proud of our staff who contribute to this as well as the many study participants. and i'm just going to close with a quick word about the proje
-citizen members of san francisco to vote in city elections. in your opinion, which city elections, if any, should be open to participation by non-citizen residents and which non-citizen residents should be allowed to vote in those elections? >> the harsh reality is that so many non-citizens still have children in our public schools here in san francisco, throughout the state of california and throughout the united states. as all of you undoubtedly know. with that being said, it's vitally important that those parents still have a say in the education of their children. i would certainly support and promote voting by those parents in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement to people who have traditionally been put at the margins of our society. in those two elections, i think, are the most fundamental in the sense that they go to the root of advancement in this country and the obtaining of the american dream. so the school board and community college board i would certainly support that. >> t

[ applause ] >> thank you very much and thank you to all of the candidates who are here today. we're very fortunate to be joined by six candidates and what i hope will soon be seven. all of the candidates have agreed to ask their supporters to be respectful of other candidates and the audience and to maintain quiet during the forum. i ask you to respect that commitment. every aspect of this forum will be equally fair to all participating candidates. as everyone here knows candidate debates are often limited to latitudinal appears and personal attack. our debate focuses on critical areas of policy disagreement among the leading candidates. so this end the league of women voters of san francisco and the san francisco public press working with researchers at uc davis, developed an issue position survey for the supervisorial candidates. the candidates were asked to state whether they support or opposite 43 specific polices or policy proposals. many of which have
of san francisco, forecast sf sponsor and regional vice president health system innovation and community benefit for california pacific medical center, please welcome judy lee. judy. (applause). >> good morning. i've learned a lot this morning nr tim and john and i think the most personally relevant to me is john's comments about the mortgage rate hitting the all-time low. so i think i'm going to have it call my husband and take that refi offer during the break. but back to the agenda. since becoming mayor, at lee has prioritized job grow *t and making san francisco the innovation capital of the world. and the chamber has worked very closely with the mayor on a number of initiatives, one that we're very proud of is the midmarket payroll tax initiatives. that is to make san francisco much more attracttive to entrepreneurial companies and renovate a blighted area. we're particularly proud of this kind of public-private partnership to move the city forward. now join me in welcoming the city's first asian american mayor and i'm very proud to say a member of the lee tribe, the 43rd mayor
working hard to make sure that the city and county of san francisco does everything possible to leave up responsibilities my office help to bring in above the budget due to the hard work of our office. pensions are a major issue not only in san francisco and the state. part of the work that we did last year where we worked with labor unions and unix to debate and discuss and dialogue and we found a pension proposal that we could bring forward to the voters in the city and county of san francisco which was passed and we know that that is not the final step that the first of many things that we are going to have to do to make sure that we have a balanced budget. the worst thing that we can do is to make sure that we need to make sure that pensions are going to be there for people when they retire and we need to do everything possible to make sure that we live up to the obligations that we promised people when they started working. >> mr. bryer. >> pension is something that is critically important for the state. and we have huge obligations in the pension funds that have been unfunded and r
well. they give them lunches. this is an art class in san francisco hospital. art class for crippled children. the photographers that i find of san francisco indicate that schools were integrated at the lowest level. you could mitigate the racial problem from the bottom up. there was also adult education too. this 1 learned one learned to read as many did. many of the community colleges were a result of the new deal. sacramento. i gave a talk at santa rosa and the city college in san francisco was largely a product of the pwa and has wonderful art work all over it by the art in action project at the treasure island fair. and then there's these special schools for crippled children. this is in the mission district and it's a beautiful school with all the features we take for granted because of the americans with disabilities act. it has wonderful tiles. this was not accidental. this is the sunshine school. we made the school as beautiful as possible to take the children's minds off their problems. it was also crippled children. this might sound familiar to you if you know the history
on their own behalf, and the people of san francisco will see that their mta considers this to be fair and good. i thank the people of the haight for treating me so kindly as i pedal through your neighborhood. as you drive around and around blocks, burning gallons of gasoline in search of scarcer parking spaces please remember that not all cyclists wanted or needed to air gait your territory. please accept my gratitude and after the vote is taken my condolences. >> lee, van -- mark dresser. >> my name is lawrence lee, i serve on the board of lower haight merchants and neighbors association. i want to thank mr. montoya and mta staff for the number of public workshops and the ownch that waoutreach done for this p. it was impressive. we met on saturdays and evenings at the san francisco day school and the community and the workshops spanned several hours, making it super convenient for members of the community to attend. the workshops helped members of the public and myself kind of understand the various needs, it defined them. we were able to give feedback on the approach to the problem-solving.
, not the least of which is that it produces carbon free public power to the city of san francisco. one of my favorite lines mike just used is this measure is about consolidating from 8 reservoirs to 7. another way to say that is to say this is about draining one of them, the hetch hetchy valley. have other studies said this is feasible? sure, just like tearing down city hall or knocking down the golden gate bridge, that's possible but not feasible. we're not going to spend 3 billion dollars to tear down the hetch hetchy dam. let's not forget, we are also stewards for two dozen cities in the peninsula. over 2 million californians benefit from the foresight of our forefathers almost 100 years ago in building hetch hetchy. while the rest of the state is tying themselves up in knots trying to figure out where to get their water. not only did we have the type of water storage hetch hetchy provides, not only today but in the future, we are in a solid place. and to spend this kind of money, and let's just talk about the $8 million dollars, i think that's one thing we can agree on. this calls
by a 6.7. what will los angeles do if they hear san francisco has been hit by a 7.2? what will we do, where will you be, all those people who work for you, do they know their azuped place, do they know where to go? do we in the military understand your roles and responsibilities? do we understand how to integrate into your chain of command? do we understand how to communicate with you? do we understand what we have and how we can bring it to bear with you? do we not want the after action report after the next nightmare scenario it read, we failed to utilize some of the capabilities we had inside and outside our life line. the american people are expecting us to get it right. they are not expecting perfection, they are not expecting huge gaps. they are not expecting some of the missed cues and gaffes that occurs in the gulf port area during katrina. they expected us to learn from that and indeed we have. i caution you again, we are not prepared, we are not prepared for the next nightmare scenario, but we can better prepare ourselves every day with the activities you are taking
:04 p.m., during the world series between the oakland athletics and the san francisco giants, that's when that one hit at 7.1 and then oakland went on to sweep 4 games to none. >> we are very pleased to be invited to participate this year. this is the first year the california national guard has participated in any substantial way in fleet week. i know we have only a very, very tiny fleet between our army forces and our air forces. we do have a couple of vessels. we are looking forward to continuing to participate and doing yet more to support this and the work with our inter agency partners. >> we in the san francisco bay area region will continue to work with our local partners, with our state partners, cal ema, the national guard, with our federal partners fema, the national park service, and with all of our military partners to, you know, really work on being prepared and ready for anything in the bay area region. and i'm confident that with the relationships we're building, that we will be prepared when the time comes. thank you. >> thank you to the panel for all of their insi
widespread damage will strike san francisco, or the greater bay area within the next 30 years. what new polices should the city institute in order to minimize the human and economic costs of the next big one? this is a question for miss breed, mr. davis and miss johnson. >> i think that we all -- we are already doing some of those things. for example, many of the new buildings, we're making them as sturdy as we possibly can. we're doing a lot of retrofit projects. part of the work that we do -- i raised over $2.5 million to renovate the african-american art and cultural complex. a lot of that money was used to do retrofit and i think a big part of what we have do as a city is to make sure we take care of our assets and facilities and make sure that we have and are communicating to people how they protect themselves and keep themselves safe and secure when an earthquake hits. and they may not have access to emergency services. i think the training that exists and that is being brought into many communities could really help us learn how to survive on our own, so that we're taking

. >> on behalf of the board of directors and people of san francisco, thank you for your outstanding work. >> next up, i'd like to ask ms. chris aashi to step forward, greg is a clerk in our taxi services division, making his he's first and foremost known as just being a very good person, very pleasant to work with. he's quiet and unassuming. he helps out anybody on the team, who needs his assistance. he's very knowledgable source of advice for a lot of people, very detailed oriented. and what he's done specifically is he's been working on some of the very disparate data that the taxi services division deals with, such as police department enforcement data, getting that organized so that our enforcement and the police department's enforcement efforts are streamlined. but he created a unified database of regulatory data that the division is managing which enables the division to much better manage its regulatory functions. for example including the more than 1500 medallions with respective ownship vehicle history of each, getting that into a database, and then adding in the taxi companies
and the entire transbay development, we really had it right in san francisco in the 1920s, and then again in the late '60s and '70s and the '80s when this was the center of commercial development in the bay area and the western united states. and early on it was probably in the '20s because the largest base of population was here. it only made sense that the commercial center was also here. but in the '70s and '80s we made a conscious decision to centralize the business community in san francisco and spent billions of dollars on the bart system and other muni metro and others to be able to bring people into that core. it's one of the extraordinary cores in the united states, perhaps in the whole world, with the amount of square footage in a very limited space, one of the densest around, and it makes it very walkable for people to go from one place to another, to communicate and avail themselves of all the other things that are in the city. but just in terms of the business community, everyone is very close together on a very flat easily transportable surface. i don't know, there is some c
afternoon? it's the same reason the governor is in san francisco today. we'll tell you what they are pushing for weeks before the election. >>> a piece of livermore history goes up in flames. what fire officials believe sparked a fire that destroyed a century old building. >>> it's do-or-die time for the san francisco again. . >>> the countdown is on for tomorrow's game 6 of the national league championship series. the san francisco giants return to town early this morning. we saw the hero of last night's game. there he is, pitcher barry zito. giants shutout the st. louis cardinals 5-0 in that do-or-die game. the team still has its work cut out to make it to the world series. giants have to sweep the cards at the next two games in the at&t park. a loss ends the giant's season. eric rasmussen was live in the city with giant's fever is still running high. >> reporter: giant's world series hopes still alive. orange lights lit up san francisco's landmarks for least one more night, but maybe nothing says team spirit like the wedding party of couple. they can thank barry zito and the rest of the g
does it fit in with what we're doing in san francisco and the bay area with medical planning. so yesterday we had an opportunity to go out and see a shock trauma platoon set up on ocean beach, had them running demonstrations and asking questions of the doctors and nurses there. we also saw a landing craft on the beach. yes, it can bring a tractor, it can bring personnel, it can also evacuate patients. it can also bring resources that we otherwise wouldn't be able to get into the city. general spies has said it many times, they have the ability to go around, over, i think through was one of those as well, any of the obstacles we find in our way. that's a resource we in san francisco really have to capitalize on. as i look at all these things, frankly i just was talking to somebody this morning, this is like the toy store of resources for me. when you sit on this ship, you look around, yes, it's a ship, it carries helicopters. it is so much more than that. it's a platform that does so many things. it's like your i phone. you ask it what you want it to do and there's probabl
of the process, of planning in san francisco and a vital example of community input and planning in san francisco. >> miss olague. >> christiana olague. apologies for being late. we' hearing on achievement gaps between african-american and the discussion was such that i didn't feel i should leave. that being said, the booker t. washington was definitely a very contentious project that i sat on the commission at the time. a lot of opposition may be classified as nimby opposition, but this is not the case of a discretionary review. discretionary review are usually initiated by neighbors, 311 notice. your neighbor wants to add a deck or do something to their property and anyone in the city, not just your neighbor, but if you feel like you are going to have a significant impact as a result of the changes that they are making, then you can file a dr. i think the department is attempting to make some reforms so the work at the front-end is better [thr-fpt/] are a lot of contentiousneighborhood issues that result from discretionary reviews that aren't always positive, but we need to keep that process
very own backyard. this is your chance to find your heart in san francisco with someone special. golden gate park's largest body of water is this lake, a popular spot for strolling and paddling around in boats, which can be rented. created in 1893, it was designed foreboding and -- for boating. it is named for the wild strawberries that once flores. a pleasant trail follows the perimeter past huntington falls, 110 foot waterfall. two bridges connect the trail to the island. the climb to the hills summit, the highest point in golden gate park at more than four hundred feet. you can get quinces of the western side of the city through -- glimpes of the western side of city through a thick trees. the lake is ada accessible. it has a peaceful atmosphere where you can enjoy a warm day. walk along the lake and watched many ducks, and swans, and seagulls. it is a tranquil spot to stroll, enjoy each other's company, and sail away. many couples come here to take a ride around the lake, floating under the bridges, past the pavilion and waterfall. for a quiet getaway, it makes for a memorable and
you for your support of this legislation and thank the advocates for tenants, the san francisco tenants union, the affordable housing alliance, community house right committee and i want to take a moment to acknowledge the good suggestion of an administrative review process by the coalition better housing and thank my aide amy chen for her work over the months. i want to take a quick moment to mention on a separate track i have been convening stakeholders, including air b & b and other internet companies to address the challenges associated with residents rest renting out their apartments while they are away on vacation or business in the field of sharable housing, but that is a separate issue. i would ask for your support for the legislationing in front of us. >> colleagues any other questions or comments can we take this same house, same call? >> resolution passes on first reading. >> item 26 ordinance amending the san francisco planning code. >> colleagues same house, same call? this is passed [ gavel ] . >> item 27 ordinance amending the administrative code by adding se
questions are no-brainers for us. that is the san francisco way. so, i am very excited. i look forward to seeing the beautiful building, the gay man in me wants to see the design what it looks like inside.

(applause) >> thank you. i want to say that this has been a collaborative effort on so many levels. and it's been a collaborative effort in the city as well. i want to next introduce mohammed nuru director of public works who was instrumental in helping us launch this project. (applause) >> thank you. i'll keep it brief. i just want to say thank you to the department of public health for being a great partner with dpw. we've had a good opportunity to be able to renovate many of our health centers. we are building the new hospital and today this very, very great project. the project from dpw, we provided architectural design. we provided engineering and construction management. and i'd like to thank the team that worked on the project real quick, the project's architect, lamont and banito, please give them a hand.
